An award winning journalist, Jake Zimmermann has been with WKOW since 1999. He's been the Sports Director since 2007.
Jake began his television career in 1996 at WJFW-TV in Rhinelander, hired as a sports reporter two weeks before he graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelors degree in Journalism. After nearly two years in Rhinelander, Jake spent a year at KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs, Colorado before coming to WKOW-TV. Jake continues to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. Carl Zimmermann, known as the Dean of Milwaukee news, spent 27 years as the main anchor at WITI-TV.
Like WKOW 27's Greg Jeschke, Jake grew up in nearby Poynette. Jake enjoys spending time with his two girls Jenna and Rachael and their golden retriever, Luke.
